't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts elected in the house simply have not adapted to that reality. >> let me go to jonathan chait and the primal scream and the election president obama won, but you wouldn't know this in washington. doesn't it feel sometimes like one side experienced maybe a different election? >> they did. for the house republicans, they don't have to worry about public opinion. the house republicans got fewer votes than house democrats, but the house republicans won anyway because the districts are drawn in such a way the vast majority of republicans are insulated from public opinion. this conversation we're having of what do the republicans have to do to win back middle america, that's not relevant to them. the only thing they have to worry about is a tea party challenger. that's the only way these guys are going to lose. that's p
at some of the most memorable presidential moments of this election year. >>> president obama and senate members will be here in washington tomorrow, but we'll be hearing crickets on the house floor. nbc news has learned the republican leadership has not given representatives the 48-hour notice to return to work, another sign of inaction on the fiscal cliff front. joining me now for our daily fix, mr. jonathan capehart, msnbc contributor and "washington post" editorial writer. jonathan, we're just six days away, no indication from house republicans that they are going to come back any time soon. the leadership has gone mum on that. we know there's not been communication between boehner and mcconnell, obama and boehner. are you amazed with this short amount of time to go there seems to be no sense of urgency on either side? >> am i amazed, given what we went through with the debt ceiling, no, i'm not amazed. i think there are forces here in this town that would like for us, sure people would like for there to be a deal, but going over the cliff on january 1st when there's this notion wher

the election of barack obama -- i just don't really believe that. i think the fundamentals of the u.s. economy are very strong and a lot of people want to invest here. we have elections for the president every four years and for congress to correct itself. i think that is a great strength and a source of resilience. i resist the sentiment of fatalism. host: is it a concern of other efforts that the administration wants to do going forward? guest: i think benghazi is going to remain an issue for the administration because republicans are going to investigate more. it is also going to remain an issue because of the fact that right now there is still no one at that compound after more than three months after this attack. it looks as if terrorists killed a u.s. ambassador and have thus far gotten away with it. until somebody is brought to justice, it is going to be a huge problem because right now what it looks like is -- the perception is terrorists can kill an ambassador and get away with it. i think the most damaging story was in the "the new york times" when they interviewed one of the chief s
election we learn something new and try to build on it. just like the obama campaign in michael's article say they built on the article in 2004 when they increased his turnout. and we never saw it coming. this is what you build on. and in their software program in 2008 which was terrible. then they build on that and build this software that worked this time around. >> even b mike huckabee couldn't have beaten this guy, huh? >> you tried to get me on this before. i think huckabee would have been a great candidate for us and i think we could have been beat obama because we would have been able to frame the issues differently. >> perhaps more authenticity. >> but thanks for trying. >> i want to hear you say it some day. great journalism. it's the stuff that i eat for breakfast. chip saltsman, happy new year to both you guys. >>> up next, the viral videos that define the political scene this past year. a look back. this is "hardball," the place for politics. she keeps you guessing. it's part of what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - you know, that could be a question of bloo
or not, but you knew exactly why president obama was running and running for re-election. with mitt romney, you had no idea. with mitt romney, it all felt like he's running to be president just because he wants to be president. he wants the house. he wants the plane. he wants the tank. the armor plated limousine. and that's about it. and so to hear that he had no desire to run, that someone who least likely wanted to be president that tagg has met in his entire life is disconcerting for those people who went into that voting booth and voted for mitt romney thinking that he really wanted to be their leader. >> so message to tagg and the rest of the family, ixnay on the talking. stop. it's over. jonathan capehart and susan delpercio, thank you. >>> next the president is headed to washington, d.c. we'll take you to hawaii. ♪ i love the holidays. and with my bankamericard cash rewards credit card, i love 'em even more. i earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. 2% on groceries. 3% on gas. automatically. no hoops to jump through. that's 1% back on...

, but there is no substance of an agreement. >> what we have are on the obama side, you have an election that pretty much took a mandate, if you will where the very issue of taxes was legislated and the americans said they agreed with the president saying that taxes rise for the wealthy and the right wing and the republican party who won by a wide margin in deeply conservative areas. they have a mandate. they are cancelling each other out. they each think they are -- that is why we are frozen. i don't know if it's been that way. the mechanics have been such that they are polarized to the point where it's paralyzing. >> the thing that baffles me and it sort of angers me is the conservative republicans, the president's vote in state after state in the electoral college. it used to be in politics if it was more respect for the voter and the voter speak today, one of the big things they seem to speak out on was this idea that raised taxes on people making $1 million or more. we are at a stand still on that. your sense of things in the house especially. the lack of respect for the voter, this idea that we have thi
. if you look at sentiment among democrats especially further to the left since the election their feeling has been president obama won and we will not take this out of seniors and we will not take this out of medicare or social security. no cuts in those things. that position has hardened i think on the left in the past couple of months. >> chris: kirsten, i know you are a believer, i have been watching you this week, that obama won and really cleaned the republicans' clock on the whole thing because he ends up getting the tax rate increases that he wanted. on the other hand, you do have another debt line coming in in about two months according to timothy geithner and that is the increase in the debt ceiling. the republicans hold most of the leverage because they can at least threat ton send the country into default unless there are serious and major spending cuts. at that point does this obama victory perhaps look a little different? >> the question is are they going to want to do what they did last time with the debt ceiling which ultimately caused us to have a downgrade of our economy.
at -- among democrats, especially, further to the left, since the election, their feeling has been, president obama won, we will not take this out of seniors, we will not take it out of medicare, we will not take it out of social security. no cuts, and those things and that position has hardened, i think on the left in the past couple of mo couple of months. >> chris: you are a believer, kirsten, that obama won and, gets the tax rate increases. on the other hand, you do have another deadline coming in about two months, according to timothy geithner and that is the increase in the debt ceiling and at that point, it would seem to me the republicans hold most of the leverage, because they can at least threaten to send the country into default unless there are serious and main spending cuts. at that point does this obama victory perhaps look a little different? >> well, i mean, i think the question is, are they really going to want to do what they did last time with the debt ceiling, which ultimately caused us to have a downgrade of our economy. do they want to do that again? i think it is a bit
will barely remember that. >> as president obama tries to consolidate the mandate that he got from the election, what is the best way from what you have seen for him to consolidate that power and that support as he goes into his second term? >> well, i think two ways and mobilizes support for especially the controversial things he might want to do and we see prospects of that, things like gun control and other efforts of public safety that he might want to make. but the other is especially congress these days is so fractured, you showed senator schumer, a mang democratic leader, saying there's a chance he might oppose the nomination. the president has to get in the face of the members of congress, in the way that ljb did, especially in 1965 when he passed "the great society." had he been more passive and quiet that, would not have happened. >> immigration reform is taking a back seat to the face call cliff these days, but how long will hispanics have put the president to reelection be willing to wait on that? >> i want to send a holiday greeting out to all my friends and family bac

to take simple steps. the deal they are talking about is identical to the deal president obama talked about the day after the election. the time in between has been wasted. guest: maybe they will be voting on a package academical -- the frustration is in your voice. i had a number of wall street clients. i can tell you from talking to them that there was a qualitative change in their tone and in their attitude about what was happening. host: you work as a financial communications and national director. that is with corvis communications. guest: thank you for mentioning that. clients of thought there was something going to happen. that has changed. my only question is, what took them so long? the signs have been there all year that a deal at the end of the year would be more difficult. host: while we're talking about what we do, explain what the concord coalition is. guest: we are nonpartisan coalition educating the public about this responsibility and our fiscal challenges. guest: if we go over the cliff, it is not the end of the discussion. it is important that people not lose hope o
going to agree with the president when he has the election in 2014? some folks don't want to appear in any way too close to president obama right now. >> let's move on in terms of massachusetts. we got the information that ted kennedy jr. will not run. scott brown doing well in all the polls. president obama will be fully engaminged in pass pass. how is that looking? they don't have a big horse to run. >> the polls show a good chance of scott brown being able to at least have the even money to win back a senate seat in massachusetts. when you talk to the democrats, they say look, the way that scott brown was able to win in 2010 were under very special circumstances. huh a democratic candidate who was not running a good campaign. the democrats were caught unaware and very surprised. you had that very tough debate on health care. you have the vacancy and democrats say you won't have all the situations at the end. they might be able to beat scott brown in a special contest. >> always tough. you think they can pull it off. lastly it was about chuck hegel, feeling it from the left and th
. so what was a very popular idea with democrats before the election is no longer the case. so times change. it's complex. let's hope boehner's back in washington, obama's back in washington tomorrow. the players are there. harry reid is there. let's hope that they get there and for the sake of the country for the sake of our stability of our fiscal well, they get together on a plan that works. nobody will get 100% of what they want. hopefully somebody -- we get enough of what we want to keep the wheels turning. >> ana, do you think speaker boehner's leadership is suffering while this crisis continues? >> you know, i think a little bit of both to be honest with you. certainly he tried to get something from his caucus last week. that didn't work. that was not a strong moment for him. it was a moment of weakness. but at the same time, i think he looks like he's really trying. and it also paints the picture and makes it obvious that, you know, he's not just negotiating with president obama. he also has to then come back and sell to his own people, sell to his own caucus, which at points
the election. they have no strategy. you don't know what they want. they haven't decided what they want. if i default president obama, i would say sometimes he governs like a visitor from a superior civilization. he comes in here and he'll talk with boehner. he won't talk with the other republicans. he hasn't built the trust. boehner actually made a pretty serious concession, $800 billion in tax revenues. probably willing to go up on rates. but the trust wasn't there to get that done. and if the president wants to get stuff done over the next four years, it's got to be a lot more than making the intellectual concessions. it's got to get to the place where republicans say okay, we'll take a risk. this guy won't screw us. they do not feel that right now. >> chuck, just your reading of the immediate news that's going to be made over the course of today and tomorrow, again, what i think is significant, the president saying we either get this deal now or we'll go over the cliff, we'll come back right after the 1st of the year and try to get the tax cut through again. but the republicans are going
since the election. they have no strategy. they don't know what they want, and they haven't decided what they want. but if i had to fault president obama, i would say sometimes he has governed like a visitor from a morally superior civilization. he comes in here, and he will not -- he'll talk with boehner. he won't talk with the other republicans. he hasn't built their trust. boehner actually made a pretty serious concession, $800 billion in tax revenues. probably willing to go up on rates. but the trust wasn't there to get that done. if the president wants to get stuff done over the next four years, it's got to be a lot more than making the intellectual concessions. it's got to get to the place where republicans say, okay, we'll take a risk and this guy won't screw up. they do not feel that right now. >> chuck, just your reading of the immediate news that's going to be made over the course of today and tomorrow. again, what i think is significant the president saying we either get this deal now, or we'll go over the cliff. we'll come back right after the first of the year and try to get
. and the third part is $1 trillion in obama's taxes. that's the obama care taxes they hid from you because they're all scheduled to come in after he got safely elected. >> let's go back to the bush-era tax cuts. for you, given your position, that's really what we want to focus on here. you make the point that democrats could have voted before when they had super majorities or big majoritiemajo and that's a fair point. but in part thanks to you, voting for tax increases is a political death for republicans and democrats. that brings me to my next question. i've talked to republicans and democrats who think we are going to go off the cliff, and here's the reason why. if we go off the cliff, everybody's taxes go up automatically. then congress can come back in january and vote for a tax cut as opposed to tax increases. what do you think about that? >> one of the challenges, of course, is people see this happening. they realize the president has not been negotiating at all over the past three months. we learned days and weeks and months afterwards that they had non-meetings where this is going on.
to go to the republicans. they've had a brain freeze since the election. they have no strategy. they don't know what they want, and they haven't decided what they want. but if i had to fault president obama, i would say sometimes he has governed like a visitor from a morally superior civilization. he comes in here, and he will not -- he'll talk with boehner. he won't talk with the other republicans. he hasn't built their trust. boehner actually made a pretty serious concession, $800 billion in tax revenues. probably willing to go up on rates. but the trust wasn't there to get that done. if the president wants to get stuff done over the next four years, it's got to be a lot more than making the intellectual concessions. it's got to get to the place where republicans say, ok, we'll take a risk. this guy won't screw us. they don't feel that right now. >> chuck, just your reading of the immediate news that's going to be made over the course of today and tomorrow, again, what i think is significant, the president is saying we either get this deal now, or we'll go over the cliff. we'll come ba
in america. there have been two elections where one party has had far more financial power than the other. one was here in california with meg whitman, and one was nationally. romney clearly had more money than obama for most of that campaign, and in both cases, the one with the most money lost. >> isn't that great? >> what does that tell you about the american people? >> the people are getting smarter. they're going, i don't like all this amount of money spent on this election. campaign finance reform is very important, and i hope somebody does something about it. you should have a given amount, equal amount, equal air time, and that's it. that idea of corporations being people. no, no, it's not -- this is a country of, by, and for the people, not of, by, and for the corporation. you know, it's like -- because i'm so against gmos, the modified food, and i'm so against lobbying by chemical companies, lobbying, and that proposition 37 was bad, and that's scary because the poison in our foods and in the air and they give discretionary polluters. we are having climate change. the republicans
